Michael Frenklach is Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of California at Berkeley. He received his Diploma in Chemical Technology from the Mendeleyev Chemical-Technological University, Moscow, Russia, and his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel. His faculty appointments began in 1979 in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Louisiana State University. In 1985 he joined the Materials Science Department of the Pennsylvania State University, and in 1995 he accepted his current position at Berkeley. Professor Frenklach’s research interests are primarily in the area of chemical- kinetic modeling and elucidation of reaction mechanisms of complex reaction networks, including combustion chemistry, inception and growth of particulate matter, and chemical-vapor deposition of diamond. His current activities focus on global system approach to predictive modeling and uncertainty quantification.
